Ms Indranee said vandalism is not acceptable, pointing out that there are avenues for the public to express their views.

She said: "My view on vandalism, that's a no, no definitely… because you should respect common property. You should respect the areas that other people live in and what they see.

“If you have a viewpoint that you wish to express, there are ways and means of expressing it. You do not have to damage property to do that.”
